Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood Hit No. 1 on Billboard Jazz Chart + Premiere New Video
Calabro Music Media  9/30/2014

Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood released their latest album Juice via their label imprint Indirecto Records on September 16. The recording has subsequently debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Jazz Album Chart this week.

Additionally, the band premiered its video for the song "Juicy Lucy" with Esquire.com:

Juice—a ten-track effort and the fourth recording between the four musicians in seventeen years of performing together—showcases what Paste Magazine recently described as "the group's penchant for tight grooves and purposeful rambling." In addition to six original compositions, MSMW offer a romp through legendary jazz saxophonist Eddie Harris' "Sham Time," a dubbed-out deconstruction of Cream's "Sunshine Of Your Love," a playful post-bop reading of The Doors' "Light My Fire" and the gorgeous hymn-like album closer, Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'."

"We love the unexplainable magic that comes from our collaboration with John Scofield on every level, from the hang to the playing," says John Medeski. "This is a band with a personality and dynamics all its own that we feel we've captured like never before on this latest album. And it will only continue to evolve over these shows this winter."

"Reacting to each other is really what it's about," continues John Scofield. "That's what makes this music work. We've gotten to the point where we can come together and make something that is identifiable and organic, yet it's growing and changing all the time."

In December, MSMW will launch a 10-date U.S. tour, while they'll perform 15-shows throughout Europe in November.
